Trading with illegal commodities is considered as criminal act. Crossfire mod contains two kinds of illegal commodities. These two below posted originated in vanilla Freelancer, and newly added were Black Market Goods (BMGs), which are presented on an additional tab. The advantage of trading with vanilla illegal commodities is the fact that they do not have preset routes (but are affected by the Dynamic Economy) and for police officers it is much harder to predict their trading routes (which changes daily).

  • Artifacts (Illegal like BMG!, Mineable)
    Remnants of an alien civilization that existed long before humanity crawled from the ocean. The particulars of each individual Artifact vary, but archeologists and scientists have been unable to determine their function; essentially, they appear to be inert chunks of crystal and metal inscribed with decorative patterns. A thriving market for Artifacts has sprung up over the years among art collectors and the social elite looking for a new status symbol.

    Minimal Price: 128
  • Cardamine (Illegal like BMG!)
    Cardamine is a drug that produces an intense sense of euphoria and energy in the user. It is both physically and psychologically addictive, but because users do not gain a tolerance, many simply dose themselves with Cardamine continuously to avoid the inevitable crash. Due to the genetic alterations caused by long-term Cardamine use, all of the major colonies have declared it contraband.
    Cargo space usage: 1,5
    Minimal Price: 284
    It is not that but interesting: Cardamine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Before starting to trade with the commodities listed below, it is first good to know that all Black Market Goods (BMGs) are illegal and trading with them is considered an criminal act! Police officers may hit you hard if they find this type of cargo in your ship cargo-hold. It is also good to know the following about BMGs:

  • BMGs can be bought only by Smugglers.
  • Criminal factions own the stations where BMGs are sold.
  • Smuggling routes with BMGs are PRESET! (they are not affected by Dynamic Economy)
  • Normal best Sell Price is Minimal buy Price x 1.7.
  • On some days, BMGs can be sold for a Minimal buy Price x 2.5.
  • Cargo space usage: 1

  • Alias List
    The Large Corporations of Sirius often outfit their more important employees with Aliases to prevent kidnapping and the spilling of corporate secrets under the threat of torture.
    Minimal Price: 7600

  • Anti-Personnel Weapons
    Unlike ordinary handguns, these don't need to be actually held in your hand to kill. Just program them on a target, relax, and let them do their job. Highly effective, extremely sought after and therefore incredibly expensive.
    Minimal Price: 5000

  • Antimatter Bomb Components
    The perfect bomb if you want something to simply disappear: Drop an antimatter bomb on matter and the long-known equation matter + antimatter = nothing proves itself to be true. Your problem has never existed, so to speak. Special attention should be payed to the instruction manual when dealing with anti matter bomb components. You definitely don't want the antimatter to come into existence when you are not at least a couple of systems away.
    Minimal Price: 300

  • Bio-hazardous Material
    Everything that's more or less alive or of biological origin and harmful to the human organism is summarized in this category. Like infectious waste, most of it is just horrible, but like infectious waste it fetches good prices in certain locations.
    Minimal Price: 500

  • Bio-toxic Nanobots
    Those are in fact little chemical plants. Injected in anyone's bloodstream they will analyze their host's blood and decipher the DNA. Based on that information they start to produce enzymes that will trigger a deadly disease the victims body can't cope with. Pretty effective and what's even better: so far it cannot be either diagnosed or treated.
    Minimal Price: 650

  • Bio-warfare Ampules
    Plague. Measles. Anthrax. Pox. All these diseases are well known and sometimes are still used in warfare. Over the last couple of centuries, others have been added: From aggressive tapeworm eggs to genetically enhanced flu viruses, there is a wide range of nasty stuff available.
    Minimal Price: 100
    Biological warfare - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

  • Blistering Agents
    Doesn't sound as bad as it is. Blistering agents are a group of chemical weapons which work like a neuron-toxin causing the skin to blister and dissolve, very much like after a severe burning. Since the skin is what protects us from our surroundings, this means your target eventually just dissolves. So far no anti-agent is known.
    Minimal Price: 3700
    Blister agent - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

  • Carnivorous Insectoids
    Think piranhas, but much smaller. And many more. Carnivorous insectoids are not bugs. They are flesh devouring little eating machines, getting their energy from their prey. Thus, the more they get to eat, the more active they get. You could call it a vicious cycle. Until now they are not field-tested yet, but lab tests on mice and rats have yielded promising results. Bug spray won't deter them, by the way.
    Minimal Price: 2600

  • Chemical Waste
    A lot of this stuff is harmless. Not all of it though. Some of it is in fact quite dangerous and therefore sought after by all kinds of bad people.
    Minimal Price: 3100

  • Classified Alien Research
    Researchers and scientists all over Sirius and Altair have scrutinized and analyzed specimens of all the known alien species, notably Nomads and Dom Ka'vash. Their findings were frightening and therefore have been classified by authorities in order to keep the public calm.
    Minimal Price: 7700

  • Classified Artifact Reports
    Numerous types of artifacts have been documented, and thousands of reports written. These include inexplicable incidents as well transcendental experiences people had with artifacts of all kinds. Most governments keep those reports under lock and key in order to keep the public from panicking.
    Minimal Price: 7800

  • Classified Artifact Research
    Artifacts are dangerous objects. Like the classified artifact reports lead one to believe, they have the strangest powers, most of which are not understood yet. Research has shown that spiritual, transcendental as well as other mindbogglingly crazy things might happen at anytime with an artifact.
    Minimal Price: 3500

  • Classified Base Plans
    Many areas of stations and planetary bases are restricted to military personnel. The knowledge about these areas is essential for every thief and data broker of Sirius
    Minimal Price: 390
    Sell Price depends about dynamic economy. Each day the Max Sell Price and also Bases where they can be sold for the best profit is different.

  • Classified Battleship Specs
    Battleship are feared with good reason. Their overwhelming firepower, the enormous hull and their range makes them a formidable core of every large space operation. Knowing the exact specifications of a battleship makes defensive plans much more likely to be successful.
    Minimal Price: 370

  • Classified Defense Plans
    You're planning an attack? Then this is what you need to attack in the right place and at the right time. Of course, with enough reconnaissance, spying and time you can find that out yourself. But why bother, when you can buy it on the black market. The high price is surely justified for this kind of information.
    Minimal Price: 370

  • Classified Military Research
    Know your enemies new technology before he fully understands it himself. And then, whack him with his own devices. This research data gives you precious insight into your enemies newest developments.
    Minimal Price: 3000

  • Commodity Exchange Access Codes
    Tired of trading? There's an easy way out: With commodity exchange access codes you just make everybody THINK that you are trading. What you actually do is NOTHING, though. It's not easy to explain. Basically the trading computers are talked into doing some transactions on your account while you are at the same time enjoying the surf and drink on the beautiful beaches of Cortez.
    Minimal Price: 500



D-H



  • Dangerous Alien Artifacts
    Most aliens are dangerous. So are most of their artifacts. Some of them seem to have spiritual powers beyond human understanding. Others are thought to be able to twist both space and time. Be that as it may, fact is that not much is understood yet.
    Minimal Price: 3100

  • Experimental Cloning Materials
    This material is very experimental. At the current time it is not advisable to get yourself cloned using this stuff as the outcome is highly unpredictable. Renowned scientists say that this is the stuff that will be used in the future to produce exact copies of important persons though. But renowned scientists also once said that four computers is all the whole world would ever need.
    Minimal Price: 2530

  • Experimental Ship Research
    Results of the newest experiments on hull and shield technology as well as the most advanced engines are among these secrets. It doesn't take a brain the size of a planet to know how helpful this knowledge is.
    Minimal Price: 3600

  • Experimental Troop Enhancement Research
    Basically, troop enhancements are a means to make soldiers stronger, more accurate, and more determined to win. New experiments are trying to outfit soldiers with new senses, or widen the range of existing ones, like adding UV - light to their visible spectrum.
    Minimal Price: 5500
  • Experimental Weapon Research
    Like the experimental ship research, the weapon research has covered a wide range of improvements. Mixing alien and human technologies have so far yielded the best results, according to rumors. Both range and refire rates are among the parameters that scientists are working on.
    Minimal Price: 6600
  • Fusion Weapon Components
    An old dream come true: To create your own sun to take out your target. Meltdown guaranteed. Like a fusion reactor, it uses hydrogen to start a fusion into heavier atoms and finally burns itself out of existence when no more 'fuel' (your target) is available. Handle with care !
    Minimal Price: 3200
    Pure fusion weapon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

  • Genetically Enhanced Bacteria
    A lot of single cell organisms fall under this category. From bacteria thriving on H - fuel, to those that are used to modify a planets atmosphere or less useful ones that are just a variation of your good old yersinia pestis which carry an ugly form of the plague.
    Minimal Price: 600

  • Genetically Enhanced Phage
    Like carnivorous insectoids, this material eats. However, unlike the insectoids, it does it on a molecular level, which means it eats molecules that are vital to its host, preferably iron - rich tissues like those found in the liver or the kidneys. Phage is also very small, which makes it suitable to be dispersed as an aerosol among enemy troops.
    Minimal Price: 2400

  • Government Agent List
    Agents need to work undercover and out of the light. Still, somebody needs to keep track of their whereabouts and missions. That information is listed in Government Agents Lists. Since these lists contain all info about every agent their kept under the strictest security measures. Extremely high prices are paid by various interest groups for such lists.
    Minimal Price: 5300

  • Government Research on Jumpholes
    Jumpholes are strange things. Not much is understood yet. One theory has it that once you are able to move a jumphole you can move it to a base you don't like and simply send it to the next galaxy, thus sparing you a lot of trouble. And ammunition.
    Minimal Price: 680

  • Harvested Human Organs
    People die of organ failure. That is, poor people die of organ failure. People with enough money just buy new organs. Organ growing and harvesting has become a huge industry since problems with incompatibility have been solved. Because governments like people to believe that everybody is the same and money can't buy you everything, those organs are officially blacklisted.
    Minimal Price: 2000
    Organ harvesting - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

  • Hazardous Single-cell inoculin
    Unlike better known insulin, inoculin doesn't help the human body in any way. It isn't a hormone either, but a mix of bacteria and virus. It's reproduction cycle remains a mystery as of now. The only thing that is known so far is that the human liver plays a vital role in the reproduction of the inoculin. Unfortunately the liver never survives playing that role.
    Minimal Price: 2500

  • Heavy Water
    Heavy water is a water in which the hydrogen is deuterium, an isotope of hydrogen with the mass of 2 u. While in itself not dangerous, it can be used to produce plutonium, an unstable atom used in nuclear warheads.
    Minimal Price: 800
    Heavy water - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

  • Hidden Base Map
    The known bases in Sirius and Altair are just a fraction of the existing ones. Most of them don't show up on any map unless you literally bump into them. But those hidden bases are where the most sought after goods are stored and where the most interesting research is conducted. Knowing where they are will make any determined and well armed individual very rich.
    Minimal Price: 3800

  • Holoviral Counterfeiting Technology
    Cutting edge technologies like holoviral counterfeiting are usually kept very secret. Not only because they are thought to be vital to the safety of whole nations, but also because a lot of money can be made by keeping a hand on them. Stealing or dealing a stuff like that will make you very unpopular with most governments, but will get you a lot of new friends amongst the criminal factions.
    Minimal Price: 370

  • Holsten Sea Serpent Venom
    As the pacific sea serpent toxin from long gone earth, this is a highly effective neurotoxin which hits directly on your brain stem, stopping all unconscious vital functions. Bitten persons die heart, brain, lung and liver death simultaneously. The toxin is nowadays produced in small clandestine labs all over Sirius since the jeunesse dorée has taken up injecting miniscule ammounts of the venom for drugging reasons.
    Minimal Price: 3500

  • Human Bomb Implants
    This is the modern day version of Kamikaze. With one significant difference: While the Japanese Kamikaze pilots in WWII knew what would happen, a bearer of a human bomb iplant doesn't. He just goes ahead in his daily business until the implant is activated and then goes berserk and usually down in a blaze of glory.
    Minimal Price: 2600

  • Hunter - Killer Robots
    Those are ugly little robots, much like the anti - personnel weapons. Killer robots have one big advantage over anti - personnel weapons, though: They cannot be stopped once put into motion. So be sure you really want your target dead before set your robots loose.
    Minimal Price: 400



I-N



  • Incendiary Planet Bombs
    That's what you want if you don't just have problems with someone, but with a whole planet. It turns the atmosphere of the planet into a huge fireball. The presence of oxigen in the atmosphere enchances the scorching but isn't a necessity.
    Everything that isn't buried deep enough underground will be toasted at roughly the temperature of a hot fusion. Take extreme care while handling them near a planet with atmosphere. Or make sure you are far away.

  • List of Civilians Under Survaillance
    Once you are in power of a nation, or at least some minor kind of leader, you don't want to be overthrown by some stupid slob who thinks he can do a better job than yourself.

    Minimal Price: 3300

  • List of Defense Network Backdoors

    Minimal Price: 3450

  • Military Defensive Weakness Profiles
    Every military has it's weak points. Knowing them gives any eventual adversary a huge advantage. Therefore these profiles are kept under outmost safety measures.

    Minimal Price: 4000

  • Military Scramble Codes
    Scrambling is used to encrypt radio messages and other means of communication.

    Minimal Price: 1100

  • Mutagens
    Like old fashioned mutagens as gamma rays or simple oxidants, modern mutagens trigger mutation. However, unlike the old fashioned mutagens, those will do the trick in seconds, not years or even generations. And they will mutate cells at any stage of the cycle, not only while the cell is dividing. Once in a while the mutations are desirable, but you shouldn't count on that to happen. So better keep your hands off them.

  • Neophage Weapons
    Neophage weapons are cutting edge weapon technology. Not much is known about that approach to subdue enemies yet. As the - Phage part suggests, it's some sort of devouring device.

    Minimal Price: 4300

  • Nerve Toxin
    Nothing new here. Nerve toxins were used long before modern chemistry figured out how they work. The various known toxins work in many different ways, from inhibiting respiration to completely shutting down the autonomous nervous system.
    Minimal Price: 900



O-W



  • Old Fashioned Nuclear Device
    Like the name says, nuclear devices are outfashioned. Fission is a science of the past. Rather efficient as nuclear devices may be, the side effects (fallout, radiation) make them difficult to handle and should be taken into consideration carefully. This is the poor man's solution for large problems.
    Minimal Price: 900

  • Poisonous Plants
    The knowledge of poisonous plants is as old as human history. However, this knowledge has of course boosted when myriads of new plants have been discovered in the new worlds.

    Minimal Price: 320

  • Secret Industrial Research
    After all the centuries away from Earth, the industry is still the backbone of every economy. Of cours there are no more heavy industries like like the steel mills of longgone times. Today it's nanotechnology, submolecular chemistry or life - prolonging medicine where the big money is made. And where the most important research is done. One thing that hasn't changed inm all those centuries is that corporations are spying on each other to gain advantage on their competition. Secret industrial research is a high - priced market good and will fetch extraordinary prizes at the right place.

    Minimal Price: 8800

  • Stolen Financial Codes
    Financial codes are more or less comparable to a license to print money. For example, with the right code you can just divert any interest payments from all the debtors of a bank or a government on your own offshore(system) bank accounts. Or direct the payments of one bank to another to your own bank. If you are smart they won't notice this until it's way too late and you have already bought , say Wheel of Sirius and outfitted it with an exeptional effective defense system. Then all you have to do is lean back and enjoy the fruits of your hard work.
    Minimal Price: 3200

  • Stolen Industrial Secrets
    Just like the secret industrial research, the stolem industrial secret give a competitor a headstart in the race for new products. There is a drawback to them, though, in that the original proprietor of those secrets already knows that their stolen and likely is putting a lot of money in making sure the secrets are not being sold and/or intensifying its work on bringing the product or ideas in question on the market earlier than the buyer of these secrets.
    Minimal Price: 5800

  • Unstable Isotopes
    Radiation is what we talk about here. Plutonium for example is extremely radioactive with a half - -life period of roughly 150000 years. It is used for nuclear bombs or so called dirty bombs where the plutonium is not fissioned itself but being dispersed by a heavy conventional explosion.
